From my own active lifestyle, I have encountered injuries of various severity from an ache to needing a surgery.
Throughout the rehab process over the last 15 years I have always looked to maximise my performance and training. I have often found traditional treatment and rehab options to be frustrating and inefficient.
A crucial step in your recovery and journey to that goal is for me to explain and have you understand WHY your body feels the way it does, to assess what’s moving too much and what isn’t moving enough and HOW your exercises will help you.
Working with me, the following skills and techniques can be utilised to treat the cause and not just your symptoms:
· Injury Assessment, Diagnosis & Treatment
· Rehabilitation & Fitness Sessions
· Breathing exercises
· Postural Assessment
· Applied Manual Therapy - Maitland Joint Mobilisations
· Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM)
· Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Therapy
· Sports Specific conditioning
Hi, im Miles Mitchell-Coop and I became interested in musculoskeletal injuries, fitness and rehabilitation during my time as a professional footballer where I experienced first-hand, the pain and frustration of being injured.
In 2009, i suffered a career threatening injury which resulted in me missing a period of time off the pitch. Undergoing intense rehabilitation and treatment following knee reconstruction surgery in 2010 gave me an insight into the practices of a Therapist and trainer.
I made the transition from patient to therapist as i qualified as a Personal Trainer and then went on to gain a BSc Sports Therapy degree (Hons.) at the University of Hertfordshire.
I am an insured member of the Society of Sports Therapists (MSST) and understand the needs of those ranging from the professional athlete to the amateur sportsperson and gym enthusiast.
I have gained valuable experience through working in the University of Hertfordshire Sports Therapy Clinic, as well as covering major sporting events such as the London Marathon, Harlow Race for Life and assisting the head therapist at Northampton Saints Rugby Club during rehabilitation sessions and recovery days.
When not working, I can often be found running, learning all things rehab, eating good cake (or cookies) and spending time with my young family.
